There are literally hundreds of scholarships to which students and post graduates can apply. Many of these (external scholarships) require that the student apply through the university which they attend. At Puget Sound, students must apply through the Fellowships Office for those which require a school nomination or endorsement.

The members of this committee, and the faculty who work with each individual scholarship, assist each student applicant in the preparation of their application. It is up to each student, however, to submit a well-written application that can be then nominated.

While the major fellowships such as Rhodes, Fulbright, and Watson require a school nomination, many others do not. For those as well as the nominated scholarships, we recommend that students seek assistance from the Fellowships office and other university support services such as the Center for Writing and Learning in order to ensure that each application is a strong as it can be and representative of the students' best work.

There are many others to which students can apply. Interested students should use web search engines, explore library resources, and inquire in the Fellowships Office, Howarth 114J, for information on other scholarship opportunities. Prospective graduate students should check with each institution to which they apply for financial aid available directly from that school.
